Most of the aluminium welding we do is repair based. These repairs range from automotive and industrial work to cast aluminium garden chairs. We also specialise in the repair of aluminium bicycle frames.
Aluminium repair welding is very different to welding virgin aluminium material. In most cases, the part being repaired is very dirty, painted, or soiled with oil. This oil seeps into aluminium castings, and a tremendous amount of time and effort is required to prepare the base metal. We do this to provide a clean, impurity-free surface for welding. Without this preparation, we will fill the resulting weld with porosity and impurities. This weld will be messy and weak, and therefore not reliable.
